How To Get Rid Of That Bad Smell In Fridge

November 11, 2015

Those of us with sensitive noses know how horrible a foul-smelling fridge can be.

If the fridge reeks of garlic, old cheese, or wilted greens, any fresh food you put into it will immediately take on that awful smell.

To neutralize odors, you can of course turn to the old stand-by, baking soda. But there’s another way to keep your fridge smelling lovely: coffee grounds.

Placing a scoop of dry coffee grounds into your fridge will release a pleasant coffee scent, covering up any more unfortunate odors. Try it for yourself!
